Day 1041 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Pink 'Tian Tian' panda heels Irregular Choice 

First of all, I can't believe I haven't shown you these yet!  I know I posted them on Pink Haired Princess, but I actually had to check the Shoesday Tuesday archives to ensure I wasn't posting twice!
Anyway, here they are and that colour photographs even more beautifully than it looks in real life (if that's possible).  These are without a doubt my favourite of the panda heels and I tried many!  As you'll see in the shots below, they have a really unusual finish.  They are dimpled, kinda snakeskin or at least some sort of reptile looking material, but there's this larger print over the top, which is only apparent at certain angles.  I think you can see it in all the foot shots, but the first product shot you can't and the second, it's really obvious.  There's also a sort of oil slick style sheen, which you can't see here, but it's noticeable in my original post that I linked to above.  I can see me wearing these loads if I ever get back to having a life (!)  Other than that, I'm really struggling with modelling/shooting these photos nowadays.  It used to be second nature, but I'm just not strong enough to contort my body the way I used to and stand for any period, so find myself having to sit, which doesn't always show the shoes off best.  It's frustrating, because it's something I used to find so easy and I was hoping with practise I'd get better, but my body just isn't handling it very well.  I've been trying to shoot in batches (I figure if I'm going to tire myself, I may as well do it all at once), but my photos definitely aren't as good as they were a couple of years ago and I have more misses than hits when I look through them.  I don't even know if it's something you've noticed or just me being fussy, but like I say, it's frustrating for me when I used to post daily outfits and now I'm struggling with a couple of foot shots!  Hey ho, I'm sticking at it and trying, so hopefully one day it'll become easier. What do we think of these panda heels?    

Fit: 3 1/2" heel. I took a whole size larger and they fit well.
Comfort: No issues with these.


  1. Hi!!! I think they look.super!!! Don't think your photography is below your previous standards, it is always excellent!!!x

    1. Aw thank you. I just get tired so easily, I shake a little and my feet don't seem to automatically twist into the angle they used to, likewise my arms don't to take the photos!

  2. I really don't think there's any noticeable change in your photography at all, but I know how annoyed I've been recently that I've had to rely on my phone since my camera was stolen.
    I love these panda shoes as well; they're the only ones I'd wanted when they were released, so I was pleased to find them on Spartoo.

    1. I know, I really didn't think the UK was going to get them and I was so tempted to buy from from Asia who got them when the original pandas came out. The colour is just lovely. That's rotten about your camera : (


Thank you for your shoeaholic love!!
